I think you’re right on that. The analysis in the Findlay for Old Reg 5(8ZA) covers this and would still deem the individual as detained in custody. Therefore he would still be treated under the temp absence rules for thirteen weeks from imprisonment and not each time there is any HDC release.

My understanding anyhow.

Do I know what I'm doing? The jury's out on that........................
